May I suggest you live with it for this clean, but admit to him you've made a mistake and would need to correct for next time.

Stand by what you said for 1st clean, you and him did agree on a price.

Be honest and explain situation.


On the other, same applies, they did agree a price with you. If they are happy to pay extra £1, so be it. If you feel so bad just offer a discount for next time because you won't have to work so hard on them next time.

Yes vito i think i will go with that route . The one ive over charged she has said she wants 8 weekly now and she left me 50p extra so the extra charge will cover the extra grime in 8 weeks time lol .

The trick is to get the customer to like you before you even say anything .

I always say im sorry to disturb you blah blah blah that way you come across as sincere and people appreciate it .

Then just do your sales pitch lol i love it i do .

Gavs right, be polite and always tell them your local, people trust a local cleaner. Even if they say no be polite and leave a card/quote slip for the future. That's what I do anyway.
